Nokia Normandy is a Low-End Phone with a Forked Variant of Android

Nokia is at it again. According to recent reports, it has been busy making its very own Android phone codenamed Normandy. It has been given many epithets of which the most prominent is Normandy. The Android Normandy is a low-end phone that is the latest in a line started by Nokia. The Normandy is undergoing various trial-and-error procedures in a similar manner to the testing of Kindle Fire by Amazon. Actually Nokia's Normandy uses a special forked variant of Android similar to Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets.

A picture of the phone got broadcast by @evleaks in November. At first it was mistaken as a member of Nokia’s Asha Series which was not far off the mark. But it is in fact a Lumia-like gadget with no capacitive panels for roaming. And it also runs Skype not to mention many other applications. 

Nokia is in the midst of a merger with Microsoft. While the acquisition by Microsoft is slated to occur soon, it is not certain whether Nokia will launch this handset before or after the merger. The Normandy is in many ways the equivalent of the Asha Series. As for the utilization of the Android platform it has proceeded unabated in case of Nokia. This imitates the usage of Android by Amazon for its purposes. 

The Nokia Normandy will be released some time next year. It is also reported that Normandy will support certain Android applications like Skype, and many other. Nokia Normandy will be low-cost phone for people on budget. Meanwhile, the effort has been described by one unnamed person among the Nokia's inner circle as “full steam ahead”. This is a sign of progress as far as the work going on at Nokia is concerned.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
